Monday, August 13, 2012

After the grand explosion of her relationship, seventeen-year-old Max Scott developed what every girl in the history of the world has been waiting for: a way to get over being dumped. Now Max is the go-to guru for heartbroken high-school girls all over NYC. But when her ex unexpectedly shows up in her neighborhood, Max’s carefully controlled world starts to unravel. With her clients’ hearts hanging in the balance, Max will have to do the seemingly impossible: get over him once and for all.

Brilliant at bringing humor to the trials and tribulations of the lovestruck, #1 New York Times bestselling authors Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus have crafted a tale that will resonate with any girl who has ever been in love or had her heart broken. It brims with smart observations, features a pitch-perfect teen voice, and will attract fans of Jenny Han, Sarah Mlynowski, and Lauren Barnholdt. Readers are sure to fall head-over-heels for this sharp spin on breaking up, making up, and getting even.

Goodreads Summary

    I wish that I was as cool as Max Scott, the main character of this book. She is brave, funny, and passionate. Also, Max has killer style and is an extremely loyal friend. Max is the creator of Ex. Inc., a company that helps girls recover from having their hearts broken and move on. The idea for Ex. Inc. came to Max when she was recovering from her own heartbreak. Now, Max hopes to use her company and data to get into her first choice school, NYU. Unfortunately, there are many road blocks in her path, including her evil Ex.

    The authors of this book often changed point of view while writing. I think this makes the book more interesting and helps the reader get to know the characters better. Any girl would adore this book, Max is awesome! Ben is another character integral to the story.  He is super cute and sweet, the reader will likely fall in love with him as well.  I give this book five out of five stars.

    Thanks for your review :)

    I have read THE NANNY DIARIES and seen the movie based on the book. I enjoyed both.

    I enjoy books where the author writes from the varying points of view of her characters. This is the signature style of a couple of my favorite authors, Jodi Picoult and Emily Giffin.
